Hi. We are going from punta cana to EWR then have a 1 hour layover to catch a flight to Heathrow. We have our ESTA. We are flying on different sirlybut thr same company. Is that enough time? And do we need to get our bags or will they be transferred onto the new plane?
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. That is NOT enough time for your connection.
My mother 80 + needs assistance to transit from A to C. Her flights are not connected and are separate bookings. Her first journey ends at EWR and the onward is a separate booking
How much time does she have? What kind of "assistance" does she need?
She has about 4 hours. Moving with her bags from terminal A to terminal C
Can she walk? The AirTrain goes from Terminal A to C outside security.
Yes she can, but with her suitcase and bag it is very challenging.
Hi, we're travelling to Orlando from Edinburgh and have a layover at Newark of 1 hour 37 minutes, Both flights are with United Airlines. Is this enough time for us to get our connecting flight when we have checked baggage? Thanks in advance for any advice.
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
What would happen if me miss connecting flights? We booked this through a travel agent and have insurance.
United will book you on their next available flight to Orlando.
Thanks for your help.
My checked baggages arrived EWR yesterday (8/8/16). However, due to Delta airline's major delays at ATL, my flight was cancelled and had to rebook to JFK today (8/9/16). I am wondering where I can find my baggages at EWR.
Call Delta baggage service to see where your bags are - they may be at JFK. If they are in Newark, the Delta baggage service office is on the lower level of Terminal B.
Does anyone know how I can get from terminal A1 to A2 without going out through security? Thank you!
You can't.
I am taking a united flight with checked in luggage from New Orleans to EWR terminal A and only has an hour transit before another united flight departs from terminal A and brings me to Buffalo. Will there be any issue to catch the next united flight? Do i need to clear the US customs again or re check in my luggage?
Louisiana and New York are both located in the United States of America, so you don't have to go through customs. You also don't have to do anything with your baggage. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time. If you do actually need to go to or from Terminal C, United runs a shuttle inside security between their gates in A and C.
my Houston - EWR flight was delayed -- i have checked bags - i have 55 minutes to make the connection -- will I
Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Is Porter help for lugguage available at EWR international arrival?
No, there are not. There are carts to use free of charge.
I thought carts cost $6, can you please confirm they are free?
Yes, I'm sorry, EWR is one of the few US airports that make you pay even in the International baggage claim.
I'm travelling with 2 young kids (4 and 6) with a 8:30 departures (UA15). we are travelling in First Class and have all KTN, How early should we get at the airport? At which level you we go since we will have Premier Access and potentially TSA Pre Check?
If you arrive at 6:30 you should have plenty of time.

I arrive to ewr at 5 30 pm terminalA and have to catch a 6 20 pm flight to brussels through terminal C .
Do i have enought time
Do i have to go through seciurity and imigration
There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is take the Shuttle bus from Terminal A to Terminal C if both flights are on United. It runs inside security. You have enough time if the first flight arrives on-time.
